Grand Junction Basement Waterproofing

If you have a wet basement or crawl space at your Grand Junction home, you know not only does it feel and smell nasty, but it also steals value from your home. In fact, it’s much more of a nuisance than some in the area may think, thanks to the weather conditions and Grand Junction’s unique bentonite clay soil.  

While some basements and crawl spaces in Grand Junction stay dry by keeping up on general home maintenance like cleaning the gutters and ensuring a proper grade, it is far more likely that homes experience water entering at some point. And if you have water in your basement or crawl space once, chances are it won’t be the last time.  

While there are plenty of DIY solutions online, the truth is, they rarely work and can end up costing you a lot of headaches and money for no, or temporary, success rates. Groundworks Grand Junction has the proven history and knowledge to get the job done right the first time. They have been working with homeowners like you since 2005, and their inspectors and technicians have a unique understanding of the area, including the soil and often dry weather conditions.  

They know the combination of dry, even drought prone, conditions combined with the highly fraught bentonite soil can spell disaster and have proven products and solutions to withstand everything the Grand Junction area can throw at it.

What Causes Basement Waterproofing Problems?

Your basement may or may not be a place you visit frequently, but regardless, its health is vital to your home’s structural integrity and the health of your household.  

The reasons to deal with water issues quickly are evident if your basement is a finished living space. However, if it or your crawl space is an unfinished storage space, it can often be an out of sight, out of mind. Regardless, the air in your basement travels through your home to the first and second story, so any mold or mildew spores find their way into your family’s lungs. These spores cause problems for healthy adults but can be dangerous for those with respiratory issues, the elderly, and young children.  

We understand if you’ve been putting off repairing your wet basement. When your family and neighbors all have similar issues, it can make the problem seem normal, but it is anything but.  

The problem is frequent because of Grand Junction’s problematic bentonite soil and weather conditions. When these two factors combine, they spell disaster for homeowners with basements or crawl spaces.  

Bentonite soil contains very high amounts of clay, meaning it soaks up any available moisture and expands in size; however, during the dry seasons, the clay shrinks drastically, leaving voids. This type of constant movement is harmful to your basement or crawl space walls, causing cracks and allowing water to enter. Once water enters, mold and mildew grow quickly. Along with a musty odor, mold also steals value from your home by weakening the structure and causing a host of secondary problems like sloping and spongy floors.  

To avoid these additional repair costs, it’s important to address problems quickly. Although it’s unreasonable to change the soil or the weather at your Grand Junction home, the local experts have developed solutions to mitigate these problems and stop the water before it causes problems.  

Our team of inspectors and installers live in your town and will work with you to find a customized solution for your unique home’s needs. From interior drains to dehumidification, our products and services come with long-term warranties to allow Grand Junction homeowners to know they made the right choice.

Our Patented Basement Waterproofing Solutions

Groundworks Grand Junction knows life is busy, and finding time to worry about basement waterproofing can be a hassle. Our friendly staff understands and will educate you on the problem and how we will solve it, so you don’t have to. Below are some of the solutions they may suggest to repair your unique home.  

Sump Pump in Basement 3D

Basement Sump Pump 

When it comes to choosing the right sump pump for your home, the decision is actually more important than first glance. Your home is unique, and you and your inspector will decide on the best model to meet your needs, but know not all sump pumps are created equal. Since installing a sump pump alone won’t solve your waterproofing goals, choosing the right sump pump to accompany your additional work is vital. It’s also important to take into consideration the amount of water you’re experiencing and how frequently you lose power during storms when you need your sump pump most. You and your inspector can walk through all these conditions.  

Groundworks offers several pump options, with our top-of-the-line sump pump including three pumps of ultimate protection. Two primary pumps do the heavy lifting, with a third battery-operated pump in the case of a power outage, perhaps from a tripped breaker or storm.  

Basement vapor barrier 3D

Basement Vapor Barrier

With Grand Junction’s bentonite soil, water commonly enters from the basement walls or near where the floor and the wall meet. Although our interior drain system will capture the water and drain it to the sump pump that will pump it out of and away from the home before it can cause problems, you may still be left with dirty-looking, stained walls. AquaStop WallSeal™ is the solution. This clean, white vapor barrier is installed on basement walls to seal out moisture and provide a bright, clean finish. This is really the best option if you are looking to finish your basement in the future as well.   

Basement Dehumidifier  

Similar to a sump pump, a basement dehumidifier cannot stand alone as your primary waterproofing solution. It is, however, a powerful tool to keep the moisture in the air under control. Consider a powerful dehumidifier if your waterproofing system is installed and you and your inspector are still noticing higher than healthy moisture levels. Groundworks dehumidifiers remove up to 100 pints per day and filter more than 280 cubic feet per minute. When considering a dehumidifier, be sure you’re purchasing a unit powerful enough to get the job done.
